South Shore Locavores

Calling all Locavores

Join us! Everyone is welcome.

Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?

The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food. 

ALL HANDS ON DECK!

Next up, Nov. 20th: Apple-Pie-Making Marathon, The frozen unbaked pies we assemble will be donated to families through the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse, with the help of their Food Resources Manager, Linda Rohr. 

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate. We’ll provide the ingredients, but donations towards ingredients are very welcome.

Are you a particularly good pie chef? Would you like to volunteer to roll out crusts? Please get in touch with Sia by November 6th.

If you can, please bring knives, corers, peelers, rolling pins, and cookie cutters with fall shapes.

DOOR PRIZES:

Vendors and participants donate great door prizes!! (Please let us know if you’d like to be a speaker at any of the programs or would like to offer a door prize.) 

Please note: The South Shore Locavore’s program is run on a volunteer basis. Would you like to be more closely involved with the SSL gatherings? There are various ways you could help with preparing or running the sessions. If you’re interested in volunteering, let us know.

Love to cook? Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings. There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling. 

TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER: In an effort to help fight hunger on the South Shore, we will be collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of each gathering to donate to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse. If you can, please bring a can. 

The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases. South Shore Locavores is a collaboration between the Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast magazine.

Gather with us at 7:00pm
Beal House/Sampson Hall
222 Main Street, Kingston MA 02364

Besides the terrific speakers and demos, we’ll provide thorough topic-related resource lists complied by the Kingston Public Library for each session.
